Love List: Lagenlook Cosmetology School

I've got some exciting news for you guys that I've hinted at but so far haven't discussed exactly on the blog. I'm going back to school!

Stop it, I can hear your frustrated groans echoing through the internet.

I've been to school several times without finishing. My brothers' have actually pointed this out to me a lot lately. But I've wanted to attend cosmetology school since I was sixteen years old yet life always seemed to get in the way - or my own self-doubts did me in before I even tried. I'm not stylish enough, I don't have enough money, I won't be able to maintain a full time job while going to school- I don't know how to use a blow dryer! All of these things helped me talk myself out of cosmetology school many, many times.

Now, living with my parents as I do, I don't have the stresses I had in Philadelphia. I work part time, I don't have the same expenses, I don't need to worry about taking care of the house/cooking for two people anymore. I can just focus on my studies and I think that, while my ultimate dream is to be a boutique owner, there's no reason that boutique can't have a salon chair in the back. It's a career path that involves creativity, style and art as well as having a flexible schedule that would allow me to continue to work on my etsy shop or write my books. All in all, I really hate that I didn't do this to begin with.

I toured a local school in a beautiful city nearby and I fell in love with the architecture and the structure of the classes. They don't even require a certain uniform- just everything you wear with the exception of your jewelry and shoes has got to be black!

Well, I do like a challenge.

One of the hardest parts of this is that I know I don't dress in a conventionally fashionable way, and this is a line of work in which your appearance will reflect on people's ability to trust you with their hair. (If that sentence makes sense- I'm writing this with a supreme head cold). At the same time, when all in black, I think my Calliope and Flying Trapeze dresses will look adorable and I'll be comfortable and able to move my arms in them. I'm so inspired by this monochromatic idea that I can't wait to get working on my new wardrobe!

I'm also digging the all-black Chucks look as well as purple Chucks for a pop of color. I don't know if they're alright to wear to school, but still, a girl can dream, right?

  3. Great news and very exciting! It's never too late or the wrong time to start over or try something new. I like your black outfit examples and the people who work in the stylish salons in my ton of ten dress in all black but with their own creative twist in hair or accessories, and of course you can make interesting combinations with layers and unique clothing pieces. Go get 'em Meghan!
